A new year means new goals and new possible achievements. I’m so excited for this new year and 10x more excited to see what God has in store for me. Usually, I don’t make new years resolutions, or even take the time to think of all I would like to accomplish in the new year. However, this year is different. Because of this blog, and my dream of being a part of the fashion industry, I have finally decided that this is the year I will take more steps towards that.
Being in college, I always thought practically and realistically.I told myself that it was the best way to go if I wanted to be stable, make money and pay off my loans. I gave myself short-term small goals and always put my dreams on the back burner. I told myself to give up my degree in photography. Get a major that will “actually” make me money. I told myself that I needed a major that was going to help me get a job right out of college, something that would easily pay the bills, something that was an “adult major”. I was bland and boring. I really wish I didn’t do that to myself. I’m also not saying that I should have stuck with photography either though. However, I always knew I loved fashion, editorial, and styling. Why didn’t I just go to school for that? How different could things have been by now? I remember my Dad asking me before I applied to college, “Well Tayla, what is it you want to do? Think about what you want to be, then find a major that gives you that.” yup. Didn’ do that. I was so scared of failing that I put myself down.
Some may say it’s a little late now, but this year, I’m going to go after that dream,…HARD! I will achieve it! If not this year, I will keep working on it until I do! I have faith in God and believe in myself to succeed! This year I will not let others put me down. I will not let others take away my shine and I will definitely not let others tell me what I should be doing or who I should be! I’m starting small now, but this year I WILL grow my business!
Things are going to happen this year! Its not just my dream, but it’s my plan! If you know me, you know I’m a big planner. I like to have everyhing planned out to the last detail and you best believe that’s exaclty how this plan is looking. Im excited and I am VERY motivated!
One of my biggest fears isn’t failing, but more so failing myself. By that, I mean giving up and not following through with my dreams and goals. I will work this year! I WILL WORK THIS YEAR!!

1. Get closer to God. I can only do this, through Him and I need to make sure im following His steps by staying in the word!!
